This was the vehicle I just replaced. I would strongly suggest doing additional research on this one before purchase. I loved how this vehicle looked on paper. Plenty of room for people and items, it can tow, and it gets decent mileage. Great! Right? Well, after the FIFTH TIME in the shop, I ditched it. The bumper to bumper warranty was getting closer in mileage to ending, and if this is what the future held, I would have been a fool to keep it.
In case you're curious, here's the list:
1: both far rear side windows leaking
2: a horrible shudder from the engine at acceleration (turbo related, glad I didn't foot that bill)
3: mytouch system completely dead, which also takes out climate control, nav and other features, again, glad I didn't foot that bill.
4: turn signal indicators on mirrors filling up with water.
5: head lights filled with condensation.
Perhaps I'm unlucky, perhaps I got the car built on a Friday, but like I said before, my warranty was about to end. Any sane person would have sold it, so I did. Not my first Ford, probably not my last, but this was a horrible experience. I hope its next owner is lucky and doesn't have to deal with any problems like I did.
One thing is for certain, I'll be doing my best to avoid turbochargers and touchscreens in the future, if possible. Their reliability just doesn't seem to be up to snuff yet.
